Launcher Options, what's all this then?
 
I recently tried clicking on the little links in the Launcher and this popped up.

Fullscreen, I know what that is. Sadly, I can not even choose to use it or not.
Show Tray Icon, I also know what that does, it shows it in the tray beside the time and other icons.
Advance command line, I can find details on by searching on google or the forum
Language, is the language the game is in, English, German, or French.
And the rest.... uh?

Fast launch for example. What do you surrender to make the game launch faster? If it was "just faster" then why even bother with a "just slower, slower for no reason" option at all.

What does a patch via a proxy mean. And why use a proxy at all?

What is unsafe mode?

etc

Just dont bother with any of it

commandline is useful if your using the demo record feature
proxy is useful if your outside the US as you can use the EU proxy and may get a better connection.
also if your install is corrupt or not working you can force a verify(verifys all game files..takes a while)
The only real useful item in here is the ability to disable on demand patching.
Enabled it means patches will be quicker and you get in game quicker BUT you may get longer map transisitions as it patches in the bits it missed out.
Some people prefer it disabled unless they have a slow download speed.
